This thread has settled down quite a bit...but here is my latest projector sighting. While binge watching the original TV series The Fugitive starring David Janssen...I spotted a 16mm projector in this last season's episode. Charles Bronson and his fellow agents were reviewing surveillance footage.

In the spirit of the Halloween genre... Giant tarantulas roam the earth in the movie Tarantula (1955). The audiance learns about the deadly behaviors of tarantulas by viewing a 8mm film. However, the movie simulation on the screen is probably the worst I've ever seen. Notice the black rounded corner boarder around the image. [Smile]

In the recent film Regression, the action is set in 1990 and a projector is seen in a church.

It's been mentioned before, but now I have frame grabs: Hitchcock's "Rebecca" (1940) contains a sequence where the de Winters (Joan Fontaine, Laurence Olivier) view 16mm home movies from their honeymoon. Since Manderley is fictionally located in England, I'm presuming the projector is an Ampro or something like it - but I have no idea.

The scene begins with Mrs. de Winter making an entrance to the viewing room in her new evening gown with a new hair style:
 -

Then, as they begin viewing, you get a brief flash of the side of the projector:
 -

Finally, as the conversation turns darker and trumps any interest of what's on the screen, a Hitchcockian use of the projector's lighting is a little disturbing:

Thanks to my family, we have made a discovery worth putting out on film! In fact, had Shaun the Sheep been around back in the package film era, you can imagine how well it would've worked to have silent prints of this stuff. Well, here we are in the Internet age, and thanks to Amazon Prime, here are photos from Shaun the Sheep, Season 3, Episode 4, segment 3 entitled (most appropriately) "Film Night." Aardman did a super job with this. Having this on Super 8mm or 16 would be a treat.

Matt, Jim Schrader actually posted this back in 2011 [Smile]

http://8mmforum.film-tech.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=8;t=001619;p=3#000071

A very funny episode! Always wondered how they got film for the camera?... developed it? ... and powered the projector? [Smile] I guess it doesn't pay to think too much about the details and just enjoy the comedy [Smile]

Lou Franchetti had an absolutely gorgeous print of that Gilligan's Island episode at CineSea a couple of years ago.

You can't really appreciate the colors and the scenery of that show until you see a 16mm print.

-The answer to every technical challenge on Gilligan's Island was always "The Professor figured it out!".

He understood everything except...Ginger!

Jim seems to like the same films I like!
Okay, here is another many will maybe not know because it is a Canadian show, in fact, was broadcast right here in Hamilton, Ontario at CHCH TV, filmed locally as well.
Bwana Clide Batty from Hillarious House of Frightenstein:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PSbkHO3R5Y
Every episode(many of which are still being hunted for) featured this tangled mess of a projector.
[Smile]
not sure if one can make out the type, but since it is local to here and i cant seem to find anything but B&H or Kodaks around here, I bet it is a BH 16mm Autoload or something [Smile]

Matt...My guess is that projector is nothing more than a stage prop. It doesn't look like any 16mm I've ever seen. That lens is huge...more like for a slide projector lens or even more like a TV Camera lens. It's pretty flimsy too...might just be cardboard. I love all the film ribboned around it [Smile]

Last night, I was watching "Dreadnought", a Derann Pathe Pic. One sequence illustrated entertainment for the submarine crew. They are seen huddled into a tight space next to an old Bell and Howell, watching another Pathe Pic on Hawaii!

Those are good ones Bill [Big Grin]

Here is one movie my wife was watching last week I would not recommend a bit to scary for me..."Fragile"...the only good thing about it was the B/H projector shown.

I ran a search and didn't see this one listed, so apologies if it has been mentioned and i missed it:

SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET

Real good Reel/projector footage in this one. Someone may know the projector type, i couldn't make it out myself...
The Dalai Lama is secluded, and watches films to learn more about life outside of Tibet. He asks Brad Pitt in one part to make him a 'movie box', ie. a mini cinema, which they watch films in.
Cheers,
Matt

I have just started to watch "The man in the high castle" ........the use of a 16mm projector and film plays a massive role in the series.

What looked like a 16mm projector, I say that because it was out of focus, was in the Episode of Father Brown shown Tuesday. It was strange as it was about a cinema film being made, but the camera was shown to be an Arriflex 16 (not what I would have thought would be used for feature films in England in 1959' when this was set). The rushes were 16mm but at the end the Father was tied up with 35mm film that was being viewed on an editor (Moviola???).

Other film equipment shown was not right, a Bolex H16 being used as a sound on film camera and so on so it may have been a 8mm projector shown from the rear close to camera.

You can see (very) briefly a movie projector in the film "Moonwalkers" I saw at the videma. Although the story is set in the UK (and partly in the USA), it seems, from the end crédits, that some scenes (the best ones probably ?) were shoot in Belgium.

I don't really pay attention to most commercials on TV (unless my son is in them [Smile] ) But even though I'm not a Vodka drinker ... prefer Tequila ... for some reason I felt connected with some of the images in this Grey Goose commercial [Wink] I think you'll see what I mean [Cool]
